Musical Monday #75

Driving on the motorway in torrential rain is a lot like driving through milk, so you can’t see any of the really fast cars all around you, and then just as you start to feel like it’s okay and you can handle this, the amount of surface water gets crazy and what feels like an invisible giant shoves your car or the car next to you to the side with no warning and you seem to have no control over the vehicle at all, so that the only logical way to drive along the motorway through torrential rain is like this:

But on the other hand, with all this rain the slugs and snails seem to be celebrating some kind of mollusc Mardi Gras

so at least someone is enjoying themselves.

 And now, for Musical Monday:

An Actor’s Life For Me from Pinocchio

Musical Monday #74

I spent the weekend in London as a pre-birthday celebration.  When and if The Photos get developed I will surely be doing a post on it.

Because I went to the Secret Cinema Back To The Future event.

Here is a sneak peek:

So Musical Monday just has to be Back To The Future themed:

Earth Angel from Back To The Future

(I already did Johnny B. Goode for #27)

Musical Monday #73

Doing repetitive tasks at work isn’t something I dislike because it allows The Mind to focus on other things.  ‘Other things’ being making up stories.  The trouble is saying repetitive phrases.  Because speaking involves actually using The Brain instead of leaving it in neutral and sometimes when I have to say The Same Words over and over and over and over and over again The Mind decides to just say something insane instead. So far, instead of saying ‘receipt’ I have said

because I was thinking about The WWII Research.  Not too bad, because it starts the same.  I can forgive The Brain that one. But then today instead of ‘receipt’ I said

 because that was how many minutes of The Shift I had left.  How could The Brain possibly confuse those two words? More worrying, instead of ‘and there’s your receipt’ I have managed to say

 More than once.  Either The Mind just decides to reset and start the repetitive conversation I have with every customer again, despite the fact that we are at the end of the transaction not the beginning, or it is pre-empting the next customer too soon.  Either way, saying ‘hello’ at the end of the conversation makes me look CRAZY. And finally, the first and creepiest thing I have ever managed to say instead of ‘receipt’ was

because I stare at a lot of people’s hands every day while they slowly fish out coins and loyalty cards from overstuffed wallets and I was wondering why so many people have liver spots and what liver spots actually are and instead of saying ‘and there’s your receipt’ I said ‘and there’s your skin’.  I can only hope the customer assumed they had misheard me and didn’t fear for their lives at The Clearly A Serial Killer Dialogue I was coming out with. And now a Musical Number from one of the most terrifying films ever made.


The Unbirthday Song from Alice In Wonderland

Musical Monday #71

I lost my voice this week.  It has nearly driven me insane.

Every time I found myself in a room with other people I just wanted them to shut up.

Anyway, I wonder what is happening with the Happy Pixie.

Wow, that Kelpie sure is a jerk.

And in Musical Monday land.

The Mamushka from The Addams Family

Happy Pixie is still happy.  But Grumpy Kelpie thinks he’s a jerk.

And now for today’s musical number:

The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away!) from Calamity Jane

One night I was happily sitting in the living room when I heard The Housemate in the kitchen.

Eventually, getting no response apart from more expletives, I went into the kitchen.

I can see The Housemate’s mistake.  

Four letter word, begins with F.  

Close, but no cigar.

In case you were wondering, the fire put itself out.

Musical Monday #67

I left for work twelve hours ago and I’ve just got in so I am tired and hungry, but I know I have to post something for Musical Monday, so here is a happy pixie

It’s happy because it is dancing to this
